hyperlon tube builder needed

Hi guys,
Our centre console AB dingy tubes are on their last legs. As this is fully wired and set up for our motor and everything else is still in great shape so seems crazy to throw out so we are looking for someone who builds new pontoons from hyperlon. We are currently in Spain but looking at options. AB no longer makes this model. Suggestions please

In the US there is Wing inflatables. I believe there are several in England. you may want to try RIB.net as well

Try searching facilities in Catalunya. They are more advanced than Spain. Further on there is a shop in le Marin that does what you want.

Cheers,

Re: hyperlon tube builder needed

Another option to consider is painting the tubes. There's special paint for the tubes that, if applied properly, renews the tubes.

Re: hyperlon tube builder needed

Thanks cool runnings, we have babied the tubes along for the last 4 years,had chaps made, many patches, but its now beyond that. Carribean sun for 6 years was too much for the poor beast, but the fibreglass upholstery and enqine are great thus we want new tubes.

Re: hyperlon tube builder needed

consider slitting the tube for a foot or two and installing grommets and use large truck inner tubes. paint the outside for cosmetics.

Re: hyperlon tube builder needed

Re-tubing RIBs is a common practice. Most inflatable repair shops can do this for you. We are on our third set of tubes on our Gemini RIB.
